Counter-intuitive actions

shame spiral

“We must share our shame” Brene Brown I so love you and what you say!! So much so I had to sneak in this extra post from you on Oprah about counter-intuitive actions because stopping drinking feels counter-intuitive at the beginning and yet it is the smartest thing for ourselves many of us can do …..

This interview is for us ladies and gents – the drinkers in the audience.  Listen to what she says and try to act on it next time you have a flush of shame whether it’s about drinking, or anything else that shames you, for that matter.

I will be 🙂

Plus the Friday sober jukebox fired up late this week!

I love Carter USM and for me this song is so apt as feeling this good without booze felt like an impossible dream.  If you are wondering if you can do this and if it is worth it believe me IT IS! Keep going, don’t give up giving up.

In the words of the song:

To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go;

And I know, if I’ll only be true
To this glorious Quest,
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest.

Happy Saturday sober warrior 🙂
